"Hero Worship" opens at Mindy Solomon Gallery, 124 Second Ave. NE, St. Petersburg, on Saturday. Five artists (all male) exhibit works relating to masculine identity. Not a new theme but one that has enduring interest, especially because of the artistic interpretations. Mark Newport, for example, knits superhero suits, a combination of machismo and domesticity. Shown is his Batmen. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Free. The opening reception is 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 13. (727) 502-0852; mindysolomon.com.
